This article explores the nature of legal discourse about equality, in particular homosexual equality, and illustrates how this discourse has traversed through sites that may be labelled condemnation, compassion, condonation and celebration. Much of the discussion focuses on the progress that has been made to bring same-sex relationships into the realm of legal regulation. In South Africa, legal discourse about equality for gays and lesbians at the first three sites has been largely successful and contention remains at the site of celebration.
